Federal Funds for Research and Development: Fiscal Years 1980, 1981, and 1982. Volume XXX. Detailed Statistical Tables. Surveys of Science Resources Series.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
During the March through July 1981 period a total of 36 Federal agencies and their subdivisions (95 individual respondents) submitted data in response to the Annual Survey of Federal Funds for Research and Development, Volume XXX, conducted by the National Science Foundation. The detailed statistical tables presented in this report were derived from the survey. Research and development (R&D) totals in these tables are given in both outlays and obligations, and the R&D obligational data are distributed by character of work, performer, field of science (for research but not development), and Federal R&D support by state. Obligations for research performance at universities and colleges by field of science are also shown and R&D plant data are provided. The amounts reported for each year of the survey include the obligations or outlays incurred in that year, regardless of the time the funds may have been authorized, appropriated, or received by an agency and regardless of whether the funds are identified in an agency's budget specifically for research, development, or R&D plant. In the tables, data for 1980 are considered to be actual since they represent virtually completed transactions. Data for 1981 and 1982 are estimated since they do not represent final actions.
